energy alliance and i have the great opportunity to be chairing those stakeholder meetings that take place, fairly contentious of recent time. i wanted to address two questions quickly. one is a question of the rates and the high rates that i think everybody concerned about it at roll out time which according to the proposals that have been put before the rate fairness board are roughly somewhere depending on your tier between 18 and 30% above current bills, and it's really important that we feel, the advocates, and the commission itself feels to really lower those rates and i wanted to say we encourage every effort to do that. that the proposal you're putting forward supervisor campos would not make a huge difference in those rates. i mean looking at the numbers is that the rate recovery is roughly in the order of 10% of the rates themselves, and so if you shave a little bit off of the rate recovery it's 10% of a very big number so we need to have a more aggressive approach i think. it's important to do that but we need a more aggressive approach. that won't quite hit it. and

in the short term and lay the foundation for long- term. we need a new energy policy. the most important numbers are the cost of money and the cost of energy and we have an opportunity to keep the cost of energy down and do it in a clean, green way. these are things we need to focus on to make the economy more competitive and they will create jobs. host: the headline in "the washington post." senators outlined immigration overhaul plan. what should be done? guest: the proposal addresses any the things we need to do. if you think about the world globally, people around the world are almost laughing at our immigration policy. people want to come to this country and create jobs. half of the fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or children of immigrants. will we say that in 75 years? if you look at companies that went public in the technology industry that received venture capital he -- capital, 90% were founded by immigrants. this is an important issue for keeping the best and the brightest in this country. there is also another category of workers needed, and i think the propos
